It's the Moment of Truth for Priyanka Chopra as Twisty, Sexy Quantico Returns

03/06/2016 AT 10:00 PM EST

You may have seen the promo for Quantico winter episodes that aired during the recent Oscars telecast. (Or, judging from the ratings for the recent Oscars telecast, you may not have.) It told you everything you need to know about this ABC hit about Alex Parrish, a young FBI recruit caught in a web of intrigue: When it comes to combating terrorism, the greatest weapons at our disposal are sexiness, beauty and a good tailor.

It showed star Priyanka Chopra, who seems to have been fashioned from a very expensive bolt of velvet, walking down a dark, mirror-lined corridor in a gorgeous gown. She catches glimpse of other characters (all formally attired, except for one, male, who's naked). It might have made you think of the famous mirror sequence from Orson Welles' film-noir classic The Lady from Shanghai.  Or it may have made you think of Fifty Shades of Grey – not necessarily Christian's Red Room, but possibly the row of fitting closets in which he tries on business suits and leather gear.

"What you don't see," says Chopra, "is the traitor among us."

  No, but we've seen plenty enough, and we're happy to have the show back.

There's no need to go into much detail, spoilerish or otherwise, about the premiere. We find Agent Parrish prepared to testify about the two terrorist bombings that rattled the first half of season 1. No longer on the run, she's about to savor her moment of truth. But Alex makes a terrible miscalculation and lands in the soup (again). In fact, the soup may have just gotten hotter. It doesn't help that a man she's loved and trusted came to her before the hearing and told her: "I think you're in pain."

That sort of thing will really mess you up. So will all those mirrors.

Quantico airs Sundays (10 p.m. ET) on ABC.
